Planting out some sweet violas and again reveling in the autumnal silence of the garden.
I always have great plans on how much I can get out of the materials at hand so had my pots all ready.
One to sit on the top patio by the bench,
and yes, those are potatoes in the green pot.
Two for the front steps.
May be I'm stretching them a bit thin?
They will turn their little faces to the sun and
thicken up though,
A nice low pot for the other end of the bench
and that's the lot all done.
I was delighted that the ones my daughter bought for me
were scented so to sit here in this late season sun
will be a double blessing.
Violas are such good value.
Some from last winter are blooming again
in the planter on the patio table
These in the pot with some roses are also last season's,
as is this one.
I'm afraid I pulled these away from the root
as I lifted them out of the container.
Still, with a geranium bud, they make a pretty little bunch
to offer you for the week end.
